Affianced couples cross their fingers for continued global warming

I have been terrible about blogging recently, but saw this article,"A Bouquet and a Space Heater" by Kathryn Shattuck in today's NYT style section and had to comment.

A cynic might say that engaged couples are able to make everything about themselves, even global warming.
Alison Evans and her fiancé, Aaron Davis, are to marry next Saturday on Kent Island, Md., in the Chesapeake Bay. The ceremony is to be held “indoors, if it’s colder than 70 degrees, and outdoors if it’s warmer,” Ms. Evans said. “With global warming, you know you have a good chance.”

And of course, the wedding industrial complex feels just terrible and hates to say it, but hey, for them global warming ain't all bad.
“The weather has been a lot more cooperative,” said Kelly Melius, president and director of sales and marketing for the estate....“I almost hate to say it,” Ms. Melius said, sighing. “The weather may be bad for the environment, but it’s very good for business.”
